Monday, 25 September 2017. The Directorate General Armed Forces Medical Services and Headquarters IDS (Medical) in collaboration with the Ministry of AYUSH are organizing a Seminar on “Implementation of Ayush in The Armed Forces Medical Services: Opportunities and Challenges” on September 26, 2017 at Army Hospital (Research and Referral), New Delhi.

The benefits of the Indian indigenous systems of medicine and Yoga are well recognised nationally and globally. The Government of India has taken major initiatives to promote the practice of AYUSH in the country. The integration of AYUSH in the Armed Forces is challenging due to the unique conditions pertinent to the delivery of healthcare in the services.

The heads of the Armed Forces Medical Services, Ministry of AYUSH, Indian Council of Medical Research and senior faculty from institutes of excellence across the country, including the All India Institute of Medical Sciences will participate in the deliberations.

The objective of this path breaking seminar on implementation of AYUSH in the Armed Forces is to put various issues related to the topic in perspective and chart the way forward.
